Its been awhile. I know. What can I say. Its really hard to work full time, go to graduate school, work on house projects and plan a major renovation. But I have news! My armoires are almost done! HOORAH!!!
So last we left off, I was having second thoughts about the brass hardware. I attempted to Rub n Buff it but the finish wasn’t working out so great. I was hoping to try some different methods to get the finish I was after. I was going to attempt find something called Blue Magic, but Bryan recommended that we give the Rub N Buff another try.
While I was out with my brother Pete getting supplies for our fan installation, Bryan pulled out our Dremel and popped on a buffing wheel. He turned the dull, cheap, unbuffed finished from this:
Ahhh! Perfect! So then we just had to buff four handles. This took a while.
In the meantime, I removed the old hardware, filled the holes with wood puddy:
After sanding and repainting…
And then drilling new holes and installing the hardware…
I need better photos. They will be coming as I have a very few finishing touches that need to be put into place.
It feels good to be this close to closing out this project!
